  • Cause all kinds of things are going on with them, they are stretching, the milk glands are churning & getting ready, more blood is being sent to your nipples. It's normal & no 2 pregnancies are the same.

  • Could be a yeast infection. The hormones of pregnancy could make you more prone to them.

  • they're probably dry from your boobs stretching. put some of your coacoa butter on them when you rub down your belly

  • I hated that. I had it with all three of my pregnancies. Nothing to do about it but make sure to moisturize them. I would buy a small tube of lanolin ointment and use it twice a day.

    This is the one I liked. You can get it at Target or Walmart.

  • You can yeast infections IN YOUR NIPPLES?

    And I thought being a woman was hard enough!

  • I didn't have this issue but I have heard of it before. I think I seen it on "I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant" on TLC. I could be wrong though. I can't imagine. I have being itchy. But your nipples. Do you have the issue a lot in public?
